Windows 10 turned out to be a disappointment for some users, but in the case of others, it proved to be a satisfying experience. Microsoft’s desktop operating system is still the perfect choice for users who don’t like Mac or Linux.

HP’s new Windows 10 point-of-sale system called

ElitePOS leverages lots of Windows 10’s strengths such as security and touch-input. This business device is also attractive, and it features solid hardware including Kaby Lake processors and DDR4 memory. The device’s body is also well-built featuring military-grade ruggedness.

Its design is different than the one of large and boxy POS terminals that are commonly used in retail environments. ElitePOS’ design is also functional.

According to HP, ElitePOS is built to be retail-durable, and it was designed to pass MIL-STD tests and to deter minor spills by channeling the liquid out of the device. It also provides efficient cooling and side venting for improved reliability.

ElitePOS security aspects

The BIOS-level device security provides protection in the case of a malware attack with HP Sure Start Gen3, which is the industry’s first self-healing BIOS. The HP BioSphere Gen3 is also one of the industry-leading firmware ecosystems.

The device features user authentication technology including an optional fingerprint reader with Windows Hello that is fantastic for helping to prevent unauthorized access.

The Credential Guard is destined for secure user authentication and password protection and Device Guard which allows IT managers create rules that will run only signed, trusted and approved apps on the POS system.

The physical security of the device itself features an optional bolt-to-counter configuration, external fingerprint reader for secure login via Windows Hello and VESA mounting and K-lock features.

Availability

The HP ElitePOS is not yet available, but you’ll be able to get it by the end of this month. HP will also sell optional accessories such as a fingerprint reader, a receipt printer and a barcode scanner.
